Baby birds are rather ugly little things when they hatch. As they grow their flight feathers they look very funny indeed. And so it is with this second brood of Barn Swallows in our neighborhood, when every day is a bad hair day.
The little clowns look like the original angry birds.
You're not our mother.
WE WANT OUR MOTHER!!!
The nest is so full I had difficulty counting the little ones. I think there are five or possibly six of them in this nest. Ain't Nature grand?
kWonderful beautiful charming. I love the pictures....
Baby barn swallows have the biggest mouths! So cute!
I can never get over how big their mouths are!
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHh how sweet and what a great picture. Congrats on getting it!!!
Madi and Mom
Oh how lovely are they....I remember the lovely barn swallows you have showed us in previous years.
Always a pleasure to see them again....
Thought of you today, on our walk Nella and I bumped into a lady with a lovely Goldie :)
I could almost hear them in that last picture! Wonderful!
So very cute!!!
Oh my at the ugly cuteness!
baby pigeons are also terribly ugly. but at least their mouths are as gaping as these lil' fellas!
That second photo is hilarious! Glad the Mama wasn't swooping at your head to protect the younguns!
LOVE the mouth open shot!!!
You need to print and hang that bottom photograph. It's so precious.
You really got a fantastic close-up of the open mouths - amazing! These are babies only a mother could love - bad hair and all!
You wouldn't believe it, but this summer was the first I ever ate blackberries! They were huge, sweet and so yummy! I think I always thought they were full of seeds and I didn't want them - foolish girl! Probably quite pricey around here as well - but I don't care anymore about the cost of stuff!
Barn swallows are so funny peaking out of their nest. Kind of a bummer the mess they make under the nest but it's a small sacrifice for entertainment.
Wonderful! Thank you :-)
angry birds is right!! I watched a red tail hawk nest from eggs to flight! the nest was on one of the UW buildings, fascinating! amazing how fast they grow! saw the mom and dad bringing all kinds of creatures, squirrel, birds, rabbits....so cool to see up close and personal!
They are so ugly and that makes them look cute to me!
